Purpose of Review: Hong Kong is a Special Administration Region of the People’s Republic of China and one of the most developed cities in the country. Although Hong Kong has good potential solar, wind, and waste-to-energy, the development of renewable energy in the region has been lagging. Renewable energies remain a negligible player in the city’s energy system, contributing to less than 1% of total energy consumption. Summary: This article critically reviews the potential and current development of renewable energy in Hong Kong and identifies key barriers. In concluding, this article outlines some considerations that need to be made to advance renewable energy development in Hong Kong.
